Here's a list of my current self sufficiency gardening and homesteading books. We have some field craft, survival, hunting/butchering books too but I'll save those for another post. I'd like to get more off-grid books too.

This is obviously not an exhaustive list but this is what I've got laying around right and felt were worth the purchase. What homesteading and gardening books do you have? Leave your book recommendations in the comment section!
